The news today that Blair will apologise for the British role in slavery is to be welcomed. In the modern mindset, to apologise is a very big thing - yet we all know that it will not bring back the dead or damaged. However, from my Jain culture, apology is an everyday act. So is forgiving others - there is no big deal. To err is human, to forgive, divine. For modernity, apology is equal to admission of guilt, and therefore must be avoided at any cost. Pride is lost as a result of apology. Even if one is wrong, one should try not to admit it. The ego must be protected at any cost.

Here is an opportunity for ethics from a different culture to be implemented in modernity. We all make mistakes - none of us are perfect. Ergo, we should be ready to apologise, and not make a big deal of it. Sincere apology would help us grow, and accept our own fallibility. It would also help us reduce our ego and pride. Perhaps it will create an inner sense of self-esteem rather than a false insecure arrogance. Sorry, I didnt mean to say that. It just came out.
